Review & Photos: Estee Lauder Crescent White Full Cycle Brightening Range did deliver what it promises!

If you have been following my Instagram @jessyings, you will see that I have been actively travelling this year to few countries earlier this year. It's really fun but tiring. My skin has been exposed to sun for long hours especially when I was backpacking in Sri Lanka for a week in June 2015. 

Although I did not get sunburn because I was applying sunblock religiously but my skin definitely got darker and dehydrated every time I came back from my holiday. And to be honest it's difficult for me to get restore back my original skin tone colour and radiant. So when Estee Lauder Malaysia offered me to try their latest brightening range, I took up the challenge with the hope to restore back my skin color and condition. 

Estee Lauder Scientists’ latest cutting-edge research has uncovered that pigmentation has a definitive circadian rhythm, meaning that hyperpigmentation is impacted by skin’s own day/night cycle. Each day, skin accumulates damage from multiple assaults that can trigger melanin production and lead to spots and hyperpigmentation. Then, at night, pigmentation proliferates as cellular responses that contribute to hyperpigmentation peak, leading to dark spots and discoloration over time. In other words, exposure to environmental assaults during the day can trigger melanin production at night.

To address these new insights, the NEW Crescent White Full Cycle Brightening works in sync with skin’s circadian rhythm. The potent-yet-gentle regimen works around the clock targeting the look of existing spots and hyperpigmentation while also helping prevent the key causes of light loss and discoloration. This new range replaced their old whitening/brightening range. It is specifically formulated to be used as a comprehensive, 24-hour brightening system and is gentle enough for year-long use.

Harnessing the power of exclusive NEW Light Cycle QD Complex, which features a combination of naturally derived botanicals, the NEW Crescent White Full Cycle Brightening promotes skin’s natural ability to self-brighten and repair. Extra gentle, yet extra effective, the regimen includes seven all-new products created for and tested on Asian women in Asia: NEW Crescent White Full Cycle Brightening Cleanser, Moisture Treatment Lotion, Spot Correcting Essence, Moisture Creme, UV Protector SPF 50/PA++++, BB Creme SPF 50/PA++++ & Brightening Balm and Brightening Powder Makeup SPF25/PA+++.

With me here 3 products from the range, namely Estee Lauder Crescent White Full Cycle Brightening Moisture Treatment Lotion, Spot Correcting Essence and Moisture Creme where I put them to review for exactly one month. I was supposed to post up this review so much earlier but was busy with work and needed more time to write although I had took the pictures some time back. Oh well...oh well here is my review of the all the products range in details :)

Estee Lauder Crescent White Full Cycle Brightening Moisture Treatment Lotion is selling at RM 201 for about 200ml

Infusing skin with the exclusive NEW Light Cycle QD Complex, this Japan Quasi-Drug Whitening & Anti-Inflammatory (China Special Function Spot) formula helps correct the look of dark spots and prevent new ones from forming. Skin is revitalized with a surge of hydration and prepared to maximize benefits from the formulas that follow.

I really like this lotion, like the name suggested it really prep the skin with moisture and making it supple and soft. Instead of using cotton pad, I prepared to dab and press it into my skin for better absorption. It smells has a mild pleasant floral scent and it makes me feel calm as I applied on my face.

NEW Crescent White’s scent, developed in Asia, captures a prestigious femininity in the tender and gentle fragrance. Inspired by beautiful white florals and the purity of hibiscus, the notes of white blooms are enveloped with a soft aquatic freshness for a reviving yet relaxing sensation. Watery accents of lychee and pear gently stimulate the senses while the sensuous woods and sheer musks enhance inner strength. Presents a refined level of sophistication with a creation that exudes femininity, elegance and prestige. 

Estee Lauder Crescent White Full Cycle Brightening Spot Correcting Essence is selling at RM 402/30ml. 

I read that this high-performance essence evens skin tone and significantly reduce the look of dark spots. Dullness disappears until light seems to come from deep within. Pure and potent, the Japan Quasi-Drug Whitening & Anti-Inflammatory formula features the complete NEW Light Cycle QD Complex.

The serum also feature similar scent like the lotion. The texture is lightweight and absorb almost immediately after applying. One of my favourite from this range! And usually after applying the whole face, I took half a pump to massage on target area .... with the hope my dark spot will be lighten... 

Estee Lauder Crescent White Full Cycle Brightening Moisture Creme is selling at RM280/50ml

This also has signature floral scent. The texture is very creamy yet not sticky as it absorbs quickly into my skin when I massage it on my face. Love how it feels really comfortable on my skin because it think it helps to strengthen my skin’s moisture barrier. I can feel my skin was feeling bouncy and smoother after I woke up in the morning although I was sleeping in the air-condition room all night long. As this is a product under the whitening range, it also help correct the look of dark spots and prevent new ones... making our skin more even-toned and bright in the long run.

And the best way to show you how this Estee Lauder Crescent White Full Cycle Brightening really works on my skin is to show you a before & after pic. My skin is glowing!!!! Pores looks smaller, skin looks more hydrated & brighter, dark spots seem to looks lighter now and more importantly overall my skin tone has been restore!! Oh my ...oh my...the result is so obvious that honestly that I don't think I need to elaborate further. 

The result is clear, Estee Lauder did deliver what it promises.

Review : Melvita Bio-Excellence Naturalift Organic Youthful Serum & Youthful Skin Extraordinary Water

Over the past few years, cosmetic research has begun to uncover a previously unknown factor in the mechanism of cellular ageing: inflamm-ageing. There is no redness, no itching. The skin doesn't feel particularly tight. And yet "silent" inflammation is lurking in the heart of cells, and this inflammation will lead to skin ageing… The skin is weakened and finds it hard to regenerate. It becomes tired, gradually loses its firmness, and wrinkles start to appear.

Naturally, all our skin has a balance of pro-inflammatory elements (to remove waste) and anti-inflammatory elements (to limit their activity in accordance with the skin’s needs). And as we age, this balance is disrupted. The stratum corneum (i.e outermost layer of the our epidermis) becomes thinner. The epidermis takes longer to renew itself and becomes more penetratable, making the skin more susceptible to environmental stresses and infections. At a deeper level, in the dermis, the skin begins to produce more pro-inflammatory mediators: it is in a state of inflammation.

Hence this triggers an imbalance in the skin; the balance of inflammatory messengers is altered. This is called the “inflammatory cascade”, which:

slows cellular metabolism, which is responsible for good skin vitality; the skin is more vulnerable to the effects of oxidative stress 

slows down the synthesis of lipids, which ensure the integrity of the intercellular cement and the hydrolipidic film; the skin’s barrier function is damaged, 

disrupts the balance of cell membranes; the skin is weakened 

degrades the dermal extracellular matrix; the skin loses its density and firmness.

With that, Melvita has called on the vital forces of nature and explored the very heart of the native cells of buds, pulsating with life. Just one of these cells contains all the information required to reproduce the entire plant. By selecting and combining organic buds bursting with vitality, Melvita has developed a patented* complex that replenishes the skin and strengthens its natural defence mechanisms. *Patent pending in France.

Beech, pine, blackcurrant and raspberry plant extracts work together to strengthen the skin's natural defences and help it to resist oxidation

Melvita Bio-Excellence Naturalift has recently added two new skincare products to fight silent inflamm-ageing even better which are ; Bio-Excellence Naturalift Organic Youthful Serum and Bio-Excellence Naturalift Organic Jeunesse Youthful Skin Extraordinary Water to their existing range which was introduced back in Aug 2014.

Now Melvita Bio-Excellence Naturalift is Youthful Day Cream, Youthful Night Cream and Youthful Eye Contour to smooth wrinkles, fine lines and redefine facial contours with exceptional ingredients derived from the precious 4 organic plant buds.

I decided to try out Melvita Bio-Excellence Naturalift range together with my Oranger Floral Water to make sure I was 100% on organic skincare :D Below are my review of the 2  new products.

Melvita Bio-Excellence Naturalift Organic Jeunesse Youthful Skin Extraordinary Water - RM98/100ml 

Enriched with Melvita's patented bud complex and naturally derived hyaluronic acid, this pre-care gel water visibly smoothes and firms. It prepares skin perfectly for the products that follow and leaves it soft, hydrated and plumped. 

Patented innovation, Non-comedogenic 
99% of the total ingredients are from natural origin. 
20% of the total ingredients are from Organic Farming. 

Texture : Gel waterish
Scent : Floral

Use this product on clean a dry skin. I usually pour like 20 cent amount on my hand and pat on my face gently until it's fully absorb. Alternatively you can choose to use with cotton pad. I can feel my face is soft, moist and plump after using this.

And to compare Jeunesse Extraordinary Water with my other range I think in term of texture Jeunesse has the thickest texture (waterish gelish) and Narcisse has the lightest (which the watery) texture. And of all of them, Rose Extraordinary Water has the best scent like rose syrup and this is my fav product of all time. 

Melvita Bio-Excellence Naturalift Organic Youthful Serum - RM240/30ml

With its light and fluid gel texture, the Youthful Serum can be applied before your day or night cream for an instant feeling of softness and freshness. Enriched with natural hyaluronic acid and rye extract, this serum both hydrates and helps restore elasticity. The bud complex replenishes the skin, which seems to look even younger, thanks to the smoothing effect of hibiscus extract and tightening effect of oat extract.

Patented innovation, Non-comedogenic 
99% of the total ingredients are from natural origin. 
21% of the total ingredients are from Organic Farming.

Texture :  Lotion based
Scent : Floral

I usually take 1-2 pump depends whether I'm using them to massage my face or not. The texture is milky lotion and it absorb into my skin right after I massage them ( note that my skin is very dry so using 2 months are fine). Immediately I can feel skin feel more hydrated and soft. The scent are very pleasant too! 

I have been using since early April 2015. Overall I can see my skin is more hydrated and no more flakey skin. I can feel my skin more firm and smoother than before. My makeup stays longer without cracking! 

Honestly Melvita is one of my favourite skincare brand, their product and prices are pretty reasonable considering they are organic with Ecocert. And usually their products smell quite good and that's a extra brownie point! 

Products is available to purchase at any Melvita boutiques in Mid Valley Megamall, 1 Utama Shopping Centre and 1 Mont' Kiara. Or alternaively you can purchase the product via their website

Review & Photos (Before and After) using BelleWave skincare range for a month!

A month ago I was invited to try out a BelleWave a Switzerland skincare. To be honest, I have somehow heard of the name before but I just don't remembered where I have heard or read about it. Later I found out BelleWave are salon exclusive products and it has been in Malaysia for more than 15 years , then it reminds me that I actually seen them in my neighborhood salon.

I read that BelleWave products are FREE FROM MINERAL OIL and it's botanical based with NO animal testing. BelleWave understands that there is a fine line between SAFETY and EFFICACY in the world of professional dermal and wellness care. The ability to balance both brings BelleWave a step closer to the cherished goal – SKIN PERFECTION.

I always believe in double cleansing in our basic skincare regime whether you put on make up or not ever since I learnt about importance of it. Because if we do not clean your skin properly with the right product and method, our skin will be unable to absorb the product that we applied i.e we will waste our expensive serum or moisturiser. 

Review of BelleWave WhiteWave Gentle Cleasing Milk
I like the cleansing milk fruity scent which give very nice refreshing scent while I remove my makeup. I massage 2 pump of BelleWave WhiteWave Gentle Cleasing Milk on my whole face before removing my makeup effortlessly with cotton pad.

Do take note that if you are having a very heavy & waterproof eye makeup, I would suggest you to use separate lip & eye makeup remover to effectively clean your waterproof makeup because using cleansing lotion to clean eye makeup is a little bit tedious and one needs to be careful so that the cleansing milk did not go into the sky

Review of BelleWave Sunwave DNA De-Tox UV Block White SPF 45 PA+++ 
I can never leave my house without putting on my sunblock and moisturiser cos I have learn the hard way. When I was younger, I was a outdoor person loves going hiking and camping yet I do not put on sunblock until I was in college. I just hate the sticky feeling. Over the years I learn the  the sun’s noxious UV rays and other environmental pollutants how it will makes our skin age faster than our real age. Scary isn't it ? So girls please do not skip your sunblock, there are plenty of sunblock that are non-greasy and one of them are BelleWave SunWave UV Block. 

BelleWave Sunwave DNA De-Tox UV Block White SPF 45 PA+++ texture is lightweight creamy and spread evenly on my skin without leaving a white cast. I was told this non-greasy, ultra-light emulsion can be a 2 in 1 product for people for oily skin because this has contains shea butter that can keep the skin moist and protected at the same time. It took a few good minutes to absorb before I could barely feel the product is on my skin. Love how my skin feels velvety, smooth and light throughout the day!

My before pic (taken a month back) : This is one of my worst skin condition I had in this few year. 

My life was really hectic back in December and January, and I took this picture just before I had my period so you can see the blemishes here and there a bit. I think not only I was feeling stress but then I also lack of sleep. So my skin was really bad that I was thinking twice should I show you this picture. Feeling ashamed of my skin condition but then I decided to show you this because I want to show you the real problem of my skin. 

Problem spotted : Dehydrated skin, open pores, skin peeling

I thought I could hide my flaw behind the makeup but then I can't hide the fact that my skin was peeling badly on the nose and chin at that time. It also came to the point that my makeup looked floating on my skin i.e the foundation looks flakey and cakey because my skin is really dry. I have tried doing masks every alternate night and applying my usual hydrating serum it seems to get a little bit better but the problems still remains. 

So when BelleWave offers me to try out their hydration products I took up the challenge because I was desperate to look for solution.

After picture: A month after trying out BelleWave skincare 

I was really glad my skin has improved. The pores looks smaller going back to my normal state, face feel moisture and soft nowadays. And more importantly there is no more peeling and my face has this little radiant glow now.

I think the cleansing range really helps me to clear off my skin from impurities so that my skin is able to absorb the goodness on the products I used. To be honest, I never thought exclusive salon products can be that good because I always thought they are expensive and I get my products from the beauty counter. And now that I try and I found out their pricing, actually not much difference from counter brand. And in case you want to know my favourite products from these range are their facial wash, toner, hydrating serum and moisturiser!

NEW : Burt's Bee Intense Hydration Range

Hey morning! Do you know Burt's Bee recently launched Intense Hydration range which aims to improve hydration, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles caused by dehydration. 

Clinically proven:

  • to reduce the appearance of crow’s feet in 3 weeks 
  • to reduce the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles in 3 weeks
In case you have no heard or try any Burt's Bee before, here is a short introduction about Burt's Bee.It has been earth-friendly, natural health and beauty care products for 30 years. From a beekeeper’s backyard in Maine to the leading edge of natural, Burt’s Bees knows natural body care solutions from head-to-toe and operates with The Greater Good™ top of mind. No phthalates, parabens, petrolatum or SLS and no animal testing

Burt's Bee used Clary Sage as their main natural ingredient which is a tenacious little plant that is native to Southern Europe and is cultivated worldwide, especially in the Northern Mediterranean and Northern Africa. 

Clary Sage is known as a xerophyte plant which needs very little water or attention for growth, it also easy adapts in areas where it grows in the wild. To adapt in harsh and dry conditions, clary sage contains sugar which helps a plant to grow and helps regulate gene expression by causing less water to be moved to the plant's roots. Plant sugars help the soil to retain more moisture. Sugar doesn't draw water away from the plant as salt does, therefore, it keeps the plant from getting dehydrated as well. This remarkable botanical is the inspiration behind their Intense Hydration range, the natural ode to help prevent water loss, the main cause of dry skin, at the same time provides soft, supple, revitalized skin.

Burt's Bee Intense Hydration Cream Cleanser (RM89/170g) removes dirt, oil and make-up while leaving it super soft and oh-so supple. Clinically proven to provide intense hydration*, your skin will not only drink in all the good—but keep it in. 

  • Intensely hydrates dry skin 
  • Removes dirt, oil and make-up. 
  • Enhanced with Probiotic Technology 
  • Dermatologist tested and noncomedogenic B

Burt's Bee Intense Hydration Treatment Mask (RM147 /110g) is this range star product! Infused with Clary Sage,  their facial treatment mask is clinically proven to provide immediate intense hydration and help increase skin’s ability to retain moisture. So your skin will possess softness and suppleness like never before.

  • Intensely hydrates dry skin

How to use 

Cleanse skin. Apply a thick layer to your face and neck, avoiding the eye area. Leave on for 5 -10 minutes. Remove with a tissue. Then massage remaining product into your skin. Use 1-2 times a week or as needed. Apply 30 min before sleep as an overnight mask for further hydration.

Personally I have tried it at home, I love it! Very moisturizing! Gonna try to leave as overnight mask and see how is it!
